Check out this adorable 3 minute film of Naomi Campbell visiting Brixton, which was shot by renowned photographer Bruce Weber for Vogue magazine. In the clip we see Naomi mingling with the local shoppers in Brixton Village, nibbling on pizza in a nearby restaurant, advising customers on the best hot pepper sauce to buy, dancing with the owner of a record shop, and bonding with her mother, grandmother and old school friends. As most of us know, Naomi grew up in Streatham before being catapulted to international fame as a fresh-faced model. As most of us also know, Naomi appeared in the video for Bob Marley’s classic single Is This Love when she was a young girl, and in the film the song is played in the background with clips from Bob’s video interspersed. My only gripe is that this visual delight probably would never have been made in this location 10 years ago. But in these present-day gentrified times of Brixton we’ll no doubt begin to see a plethora of music videos, magazine shoots and films vying for a slice of SW2 now that it’s been given the seal of approval from so-called taste-makers. For further evidence look no further than Gregory Porter’s recent remake of The In Crowd which was also shot in Brixton Village. That said, the attention is duly deserved. Brixton to me, is one of the most soul-ful, vibrant and fascinating areas of London. It’s a shame it’s taken so long for the cool kids to cotton on.
